How can you say that Christ died when he lives still? The passing body died, no more. And the body is such a temporary thing, serving its purpose for a while, and then dropping away in order that the soul may fly free. Thus the servant body makes way for greater freedom and Immortality. The body no longer cramps your style.
What has been does not matter one whit compared to what is now.
You may have taken a thousand false steps, yet now you can take any step you choose. You are always in the position of making some kind of choice. Even if you are firmly planted with your intention on good for the world, each day greets you anew, and you have new decisions to make or old ones to make once again.
Be a friend first. There is no need to wait for others to extend their hands to you first. When you greet another, you are greeting yourself. By all means, greet yourself. No ands, ifs, and or buts. For easy understanding, you have made yourself into an I and so have many others, and I give a lesson in grammar that you and I are a We. We like to be We. You like to be We. You like to be We with Me, and you like to be We with others.
There is a momentum in Life. It is like a fire you build, and it behooves you to keep the fires burning. The fire you add to is yourself. Either you go forward, or you allow your project to die on the vine.
If your thoughts have been in a rut, what is there to do but get onto a new track? If you have been thinking about the ills of the world, change the station you listen to. Return to beauty. Remember upliftment. Uplift yourself. Pull yourself up.
When you are on a train, you have to know when to get off. If you take a bus, you have to be alert to where you transfer. You have no obligation to stay on a bus or a train. You can get off wherever you want. Get off at a stop that serves you and the universe.
You carry an umbrella when it’s raining. You don’t carry around an umbrella every day in the event it should rain. For what earthly reason would you carry dreary thoughts? They shield you from nothing. They are the very enemy, and you have been taking care of them, protecting them at your own expense.
This isn’t self-centeredness – not at all. This is awareness. You have choices. Awaken to your own merit. Your own merit goes far beyond vanity. You might as well recognize the truth of yourself. Age and such are not the truth of you by a long shot.
Do you think I take everything so seriously as you do? Do you think I take anything so seriously as you do? Do you think I am daunted by emotions and disappointments? Do you think I am daunted by death of the body? Do you think that if I spill milk, I cry?
If I am not daunted by spilt milk, must you be?
Today have the thought: "God has a sense of humor, and so do I."
Although I am the Mover, you don't just sit there. You also move. Although I am to be relied on, you also have to get up and rely on yourself. Although you are a watcher in life, you do not only watch. Although you may have to wait in life, you do not play a waiting game. Although you sit in the audience and watch the movie, you are also on the screen, moving around up there, performing actions, moving your arms, making discoveries.
Where you have clouds in your heart, invite the sunshine in. Where We exist, you and I – and We exist as One, and We are in Bright Light – darkness does not exist. Darkness is fantasy. In Truth, there is nothing to compare Light to.
